Sewing Incubator

Rocio Evenett was gifted a sewing machine when she was 3 years old. Little did she know that small gift would provide the spark that would fuel her lifelong ambition for fashion design, sewing, and garment manufacturing. Rocio’s strong work ethic, instilled in her by her grandmother, led her to a fashion design internship at the age of 15 and later to the London College of Fashion. Rocio recognized that many up-and-coming garment makers didn’t understand garment manufacturing or pattern-making using computer design, which led her to start Sewing Incubator with a partner in December 2019. Sewing Incubator provides PPE manufacturing, wholesale specialty product design and manufacturing for direct to consumer brands, and education for individuals interested in garment design and manufacturing using more efficient techniques, including a digital learning platform in conjunction with direct support for startup brands and entrepreneurs to launch their own product lines for the first time.
